I've had a hard time making sense of the latest news about health care legislation. In the Senate, Joe Lieberman seems to be backing off from his threat to filibuster a reform bill; maybe he realized that a filibuster isn't necessary because you can shut down the Senate by simply writing a letter.
Over in the House, the wacky extremists at the AARP are supporting the House health bill, but Republican congresswoman Virginia Foxx responds that health care reform is worse than terrorism. Apparently, either my grandmother is a card-carrying member of a terrorist organization, or Virginia Foxx is a raving lunatic. I'll see grandma in a couple weeks, so I'll let you know what I find out.
